The results of our poll of casting suggestions for the British version of The Golden Girls. Maggie Smith was the most frequent choice for the role of Dorothy (second: Judi Dench). Honor Blackman came up trumps - or tramps - as man-mad Blanche, ahead of Joan Collins, Kate O'Mara and Lily Savage. Nearly everyone demanded Dora Bryan to play Rose. Patricia Hayes and Liz Smith tied for the plum part of Sofia. One actress appeared in all categories: Patricia Routledge.
